This property is just what the Doctor ordered for rest, rejuvenation and relaxation. It is located 500 feet on a hillside overlooking the Pacific ocean. The beach below is terrific for swimming and surfing. We visited seven different beaches all within a fifteen minute drive of the villa. Most are very secluded. The villa has everything a person would desire. The master bedroom is large with windows on two sides. The view of the ocean is something you never tire of when waking up in the morning. The master bathroom has a unique shower that has plenty of water pressure. The other bedroom also has a nice view and accompanying bathroom. Both rooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans. We never used the air conditioning because of the wonderful breezes coming off the ocean. The kitchen is very well appointed and also has a nice view of the pool and ocean. Oodles of counter space including the large island. The fridge is large and the ice dispenser is a nice touch to keep your drinks cold. We used the barbecue quite often to grill the local fish. The living room area with flat screen T.V. is very comfortable and there are hundreds of movies to select. A nice way to end a relaxing day, watching a movie. The outdoor eating and lounge area beside the pool and overlooking the ocean is very enticing. You won't want to leave this area of the villa. Comfortable lounger and chairs are great to curl up on to read that new book. The infinity pool is crystal clear and perfect temperature. Being 45' long makes it perfect for swimming laps. It is a great way to start your day. The property itself is very secluded and private. It is on a hillside in the middle of a rain forest. The property is very secure and we felt safe our entire stay. The grounds are immaculate and great planning has been given to the design. On the lower plateau there are numerous fruit trees planted and I am sure they will provide bountiful amounts of fruit in the future. Overall, this is a gorgeous property that you will find totally relaxing with all the amenities anyone would want. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

Renting a car in Costa Rica

Although Costa Rica is blessed with a superb bus system that operates at a low cost, the easiest way to make the most of your vacation in paradise is to rent a vehicle.

Acquiring a rental car in this country is a simple process—a passport, valid driver’s license and active credit card will do the trick—but there are a few items of note that will assist you in your search for the proper wheels.

First and foremost, you must decide if you want to pick up a rental car near the international airport in San Jose, which is what most people choose and we will email you detailed directions to Dominical or you can wait until after you’ve settled in at one of our vacation rentals in Dominical. If want us to arrange a taxi or mini bus and hold off on a rental car until after arriving in Dominical, we can help put you in contact with a local Car Rental agent.

The drive south from San Jose to Dominical takes approximately three and quarter hours and is fairly straightforward. There are only two highways to travel on, Highway 27 from San Jose to the Jaco exit, and the Pan-American Highway that runs south from Jaco. The Pan-Am Highway provides some of the most spectacular roadside scenery in all of Central America.

Since a good amount of your vacation will be spent in the southern zone where dirt-and-gravel roads easily outnumber paved pathways, we recommend renting a 4x4 vehicle. Can you get by with a two-wheel drive? In most cases, yes, but a 4x4 is a better option in the event of inclement weather or if your party wants to explore deep jungle far off the beaten path.

The price for rental cars varies by season, with the green season, May through November, being the cheapest time of year to purchase a rental. From December through April, prices increase by at least 25 percent.

The Costa Rican government requires all rental cars to have insurance. Even if your credit card company covers you on rentals, you must, at a minimum, buy liability insurance.

While many credit cards offer add-on perks to vehicle insurance, or will even elevate typical liability insurance to full coverage, it’s important to call your company in advance to garner specific details about international car rentals.

Liability insurance costs about $20 per day. With only liability, the deposit on your credit card will range from between $750 to $1,500 depending on the type of vehicle. Toyota is known to require the smallest deposit at $750.

Liability coverage is extremely limited, and you can be charged for any damage that occurs to your rental. For an extra $5 per day, travelers can extend liability coverage to include damage to windows, tires and mirrors.

To avoid concerns about paying for any potential car damage, you can purchase full-coverage insurance for approximately $40 per day. Your credit card deposit also shrinks with full coverage, often to as low as $100 per vehicle.

Lastly, many car rental companies offer complimentary cellphone and GPS service, although these services aren’t always advertised. Road maps are also provided for
